    I FULLY agree, the airport addicted bag - best thing ever. Very very good!

    No problems on american airlines that give you like up to 18kg hands on carry, and close one eye if you're at 22/25/29 kg.

    SIA?

    make so much noise when I was flying back with this bag and 20 kg worth of equipment. *sigh*

    I think a lot of airlines are quite stringent on weight limits now...the hand carry weight is like 7kg wasn't it? The funny thing is normal hand carry bags already weight 3kg....

    I waslucky once on cathay pacific where I dumped heavy document files in the carry on and still managed to go through. Had to pretend that it was a featherweight bag when bringing it around

    Qantas forced me to open my bag and transfer stuff from the carryon to the check-in.

    Would like to know how the belt will feel on those with *ahem* large tummies..Does the belt come in different sizes or is it just one size fits all?
    Also, one problem I've had with belts/waistpouches is that it often tries and drag my pants down if it is to heavily weighted down. Do you have the same feeling with this too?

    whoops! I just saw the website. Belt got different size afterall.

    Harness may be a better option for me

    Just saw the 12 piece pro modus set!!

    Then I saw the price ... jia lat!

    Does this suffer from overpadding like those Lowepro lens pouches?
    How thick and flexible izzit?

    Interesting system. But is it worth it to switch everything from Lowepro. I will be in California next month, will drop by their agent in Palo Alto and take a look.

    Anyone wants me to bring their TT purchase back, let's talk.

    You got your own AA already? From current feedback, it doesn't seem that the AA has a very comfy shoulder mounting solution. Straps are apparently somewhat on the thinly-padded side. Will wait till the day I have enough gear to actually fill in the whole compartment before I even consider one of the Airport series.

    Guys with large tummies have been seen with it. So long the belt can reach your iliac crest, you're definitely safe. This system so far has yet to pull my pants down at all, compared to the slinky-yucky feeling I got from the Lowepro Deluxe waistbelt.

    Oh yes. To those who want THICK padding, you've have to look elsewhere. The padding for the lens cases are somewhat on the thin but firm side. Put it this way, you wouldn't be wearing the entire kit and throwing yourself into a mosh pit. The padding for Whip It Out is somewhat thicker than the rest of the lens cases, but it's still very compact. I personally recommend getting the WIO because it streamlines the entire lens plus hold it close to the body. This way, you don't get the irritating "jiggling" feeling you may have as I got with my previous Lowepro Lens Case 4. It was big enough to take my entire 70-200/2.8 WITH lens hood reversed, but when packing, it takes up almost twice the volume the WIO takes.

    Did you specify that requirement to Doug? If you did, he will see what your options are and send it to you at an agreeable rate.

    Good news. I'm expecting the ThinkTank brochures to come in via the mail service around noon today. I'll arrange to meet up one day where those interested can pick up the papers from me soon. Cos last night I received a call asking me to be at home for a delivery...

    carried the AA all across alaska... for two weeks...

    the straps aren't the most fantastic, but they sure do a good job.

    4-8 hours a day for 2 weeks carrying equipment on this bag, no problems so far.

    (temporary page, please do not link here lest you want a dead link)

    I'd think it would be possible to meet in say, on one of the weekend nights in town.

    Those staying around Serangoon Central, can come over to pick it up from me direct - but give me a call at 9640 8500 first. Thanks!
